How to Consign
6 simple steps to consigning at Labels
- Know what we look for:
-We look for contemporary women's (including maternity) and children's clothing with up-to-date styles (within the last 3 years) in excellent condition. Items with holes, stains or strong odors will NOT be accepted. We are much more selective on inexpensive brands such as Forever 21, H&M, and Old Navy.
-Items are accepted seasonally. When in doubt, bring it in and we'll let you know if we'd take it at a later time.
-We also take shoes, handbags, belts, scarves, and costume jewelry.
-Only higher-end children's clothing brands are accepted, such as Mini Boden, Hanna Andersson, Crewcuts, and Nordstrom brands. Sizes newborn through 10/12 sell best.
2. Call to schedule an appointment. Consignments are made by APPOINTMENT ONLY and can be made every day of the week during business hours. To start a new account, we require a minimum of 10 items to be brought in for your first appointment, since we typically need to accept at least 3 to 5 of your items to start out. FOR CONSIGNORS WITH CURRENT ACCOUNTS ONLY: We have a new walk-in policy for your convenience! If you have 5 items or less to bring in, you do not need an appointment! Please allow at least 30 minutes after our open time and an hour before we close to drop in with your items. Only consignments with 5 items or less will be considered for a walk-in appointment. Thank you!
3. Get your items ready. Women's clothing must be clean and brought in on hangers or folded nicely in shopping bags (NO large boxes or suitcases please!). Children's clothing must be clean and may be brought in shopping bags.
4. Bring in your items. You are welcome to shop around the store while we look through your items, or run an errand and come back within the same day as your appointment, retrieving leftovers no later than 30 minutes before we close. We make our selection based on what we feel will sell best. Items are usually kept in the store between 6 to 8 weeks.
5. Get paid!
-Both parties will receive 50% of the selling price.
-Consigners have the option of picking up a check, leaving a self-addressed, stamped envelope to have it mailed, or using in-store credit.
-Checks are issued every other month on the 1st (Jan 2, Mar 1, May 1, July 1, etc).
6. Take care of leftovers. If any of your items do not sell, you can opt to have them donated to charity or arrange to pick them up.
We look forward to doing business with you!
